Is wrapping paper recyclable?
Even if we usually believe that wrapping paper is just made of paper, many varieties are actually complicated to recycle. It cannot be recycled if it contains sparkles, glitter, sequins, foil, artificial texture, sticky gift labels, or plastic. Nor can it be recycled if it has been laminated or has loads of leftover tape, ribbons, or bows still attached, which is, unfortunately, the case most of the time. Because of it, wrapping paper creates millions of tons of waste. You can now choose this reusable alternative!
